Just thought "IN YOUR 30'S AND TTC -- PART 7" was taking too long to upload so I decided to create "PART 8" of course... with a little nudge! Hope you can join in on chats we have going on in this thread!

Today was stressful just trying to keep an eye on the pups at all times. Then Josh wanted to goto Carson City to Costco and Wal-mart... but wanted me to go with. On the way I was stressed thinking the worse things to come home to. So I called his mother to check on the pups on her way home from work. Every one was accounted for when I got home, phew!!!! When we got home Josh ended up putting some 2x4's on the sides inside the whelping box... so now Molly cannot lay or sit against the sides of the box and cannot crush any more puppies... however, there is a lot less space for her so when she got in for the 1st time after the remodel and was stepping on them and sitting on them. AGH, new problems have risen! LOL, not a dull moment in my house... LOL, oh and the kicker.... every time my cat Baxter goes up to the whelping box Molly gives him the I am gonna kill ya look... Baxter turns around and throws up. He has done it twice. VERY ODD indeed I tell ya! SUE: Sorry you are still not feeling well. Have you tried some hot water w/ a little lemon. That always seems to settle my stomach somewhat and gets fluids in ya so you don't get dehydrated. MINDY: Sorry your work is being big a$$es about you leaving. Just think tomorrow they can kiss you culo goodbye and you'll never have to go there again! Woo Hoo for you!! Did you do your OPK today? Did you get a + ?? AALICE: My just starting garden seems so behind to your already producing garden. One more week to go to your hopefully BFP!! DELTA: What have you been up too? Welp its 11:30 and i am really tired.. Ciao for now.

97.99 today, up another .9... Weirdest thing, I woke up at like 2 am not able to go back to sleep because I was starving and I tried to ignore it but I woke up with the same thing at like 6. Now I love sleeping anything that bothers me, I tend to ignore, but I couldn't so I went and ate some Cheerios and my stomach settled. Haven't had that, well since Dec before the m/c... Could be psychological or just weird, since symptoms seem to come and go these months just cause everything has changed so much... But trying still not to think to much of things, but I was convinced it was Friday on Tuesday of this week, so the week has just been dragging and I'm sure the 2ww had something to do with that... NV: Oh, your poor cat, that's sad, but hecka funny too. My twitchy calico would totally do the same thing, when we got the new cat any time he looked at her she would hiss, now he hisses as hello to people sometimes I think he got confused what it meant, he's a weird cat too.... And the garden, that's the perks of having gotten up to 90 in April, sigh. :) MO: YEAH!!! Last day!!! :) DE: Oh, slowly going crazy over here in the midst of 2ww.... Oh, the only thing I heard about lifting, is they say that with pregnancy something about back muscles or tendons or other, become looser due to moving around and expansion of the uterus, which means it's easier for you to strain your back, but that it's not an actual risk to the child but the mother. So, lift with your knees not with your back... :P Hehe, bull testing, just sounds like a phrase that would instinctively make men squirm, even if they didn't know what it was... SUE: Hi there!

wow..part 8...LOL... Well, I just got back from the ob's office. My hcg level is 5344 and progesterone is 28 so the doc is pretty happy with those numbers. I go for another pro and hcg test on Monday to make sure it's doubling and then back to him on Thursday for the results. On Thursday if looks good then they'll book me for my first u/s at 8 wks... I'm around 5wks now.... little gapher over here!! lol..So, dh and I are pretty happy!!! Nervous but calm... MI.. poor ole Baxter... Molly's giving him the look of death and he sure is scared! LOL... Molly must be so d__n happy that her welping box is getting smaller but heck gotta do something to stop here from crushing her babies...So now that she's sitting on them..lol... what are you gonna do? That's great that dh's mom sat with them. Must make you very nervous when you're not around...I'd be on pins and needles worrying.. that's gotta be hard...No, haven't tried the hot water w/lemon but I will.... seems when I have something spicy like tomatoe sauce it doesn't sit well... get yucky tummy.. Doc gave me a prescription for diclectin which I think I'll fill tomorrow.. imagine it'll get worse before it get better! lol...how's you're nausea been? MO... last day !!! woohoo!!! that weight must be slowing lifting off your shoulders as the hours tick by.... almost done girl! then a whole week off to just relax and unwind...good stuff! Knew MI would have to get that culo in there somewhere...lol... she hasn't said it in awhile eh MI.. culo!! LOL...DE... yeah, that would be great to hear from the docs office. Still debating about wanted the know the s_x eh.... bull c___p.. speaking of bull...ok.. tell us what that really means... gross us out..LOL...So, it's ok to bale and stuff.. guess that means they'll be putting ya to work!! Darn... can't you lie and say that the doc said it's not good.... LOL... so bad....AA... humm.. cheerio's in the middle of the night...seeing as were on a new thread now.. when did you o... what dpo are you on? MO... how's it going with acupuncture and stuff. Anything new there? I asked the doc about my low fsh level and he said it was perfectly normal. Anything under 9 is considered great "contact"...You mentioned I think on part 7 that I was on the other end of the number scale and perhaps I wasn't o'ing but doc said that's not the case. I o'd in April, he said cd14 according to my bloodwork (cd21) and I obviously o'd in May. So, sometimes I think numbers have little to do with it because there not always accurate you know... Perhaps your's is high but maybe it's not... they did 1 test..anything could've affected it. Just look at what your mom said.. really, I think they should send you for the challenge so you would at least have 2 result to go by. Just my opinion? Well gals, I should go get some dinner ready for dh.. thanks goodness it's Friday... one more afternoon shift for him... yuck! Have a good one ..

SUE: 5 dpo, o'd on Sunday, probably too soon, go fig, we'll see, if all else fails and it didn't take this time, I'll be able to drink when we go on our trip for our anniversay, we head out next Sunday, which will be 14 dpo... And YEAH! on your numbers, very nice :) I'm sure your relieved, I'm over here relieved for you, but not relieving for you (where did that come from...) :) Well more yard work for me this weeked. DH fixed the fence and we are putting up a trellis section so that we don't have to look at our neighboor who decided to build a porch off the second story of his house, so it looks right into our yard, he also proceeded to trim the tree that blocked them. Sigh. But then I can plant the two grapes I've had in a pot for a year and put in a climbing rose. :) I'm cramming plants into every part of this yard, it's not very big, but it's amazing how much you can fit when determined... :)

 

Suebee - June 9

AA...Oh.. that's right.. you guys are headed off to Carmel right? What Anniversary is it again? I hear it's beautiful there. I've always wanted to visit California.. someday..lol...Woohoo.. 5dpo !!! Not gonna fail my friend... I'm feeling it for ya this month!!! So glad you're relieving.. ummm.. I mean, yep alittle relieved here...LOL...very cute! Gosh, you're a busy little bee with all this gardening, although with nosy neighbour over there you can't help but fill your yard with more trees and flowers and stuff...You and dh must be really interesting for him to build a deck and trim his tree.. kinda sounds like he's peeping... are you bd'ing in the yard!!! LOL... you go girl.... LOL...Boy, sure does sound nice. We have a couple grape plants... what Italian doesn't... lol...Anyway, sounds lovely... well, say hi to peeping Tom for me..... hehe...

 

aalice - June 9

SUE: 2 year wedding anniversary, though we've been together for 6... Yeah, we are going to go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and then walk around carmel and stuff. The place we are renting is a condo that you can open the sliding gla__s doors and walk onto the beach... :) Yeah, we'll see what peeping neighbor does when we put up the trellis, actually I think they feel bad, they used it a little when first built, but they really don't use it anymore, so I think it's more that they didn't think it out, because it's just silly... though they could be hiding behind the door and spying on us in the hot tub... Ok, time for me to head home, since there is no one left here at work...

 

NVgirl - June 9

AALICE: When is your anniversary? My 3 year is coming up on July 4th. Not sure what we are doing as of yet -- but gonna take a 4-day weekend -- isn't that nice! I did however, order an anniversary cake from the lady who made of wedding cake -- she makes it exactly the same every year -- yummy!!!

 

Suebee - June 9

Oh, and the condo sounds amazing... walk right onto the beach... ahhh... so nice...Yep, think peeping tom is gonna miss ya while you're gone...lol...put that trellis up girl....sounds like you had a long day at work! ...well enjoy the weekend! Can't wait to see what you've planted next...lol..:)

Good morning everyone (and sorry in advance if this post is a monster). I am sorry for being MIA yesterday. I had a few things thrown at me that the VP needed "before I left", which, of course, were things I had been TRYING to do for him for weeks or months and he wasn't getting back to me (which is another reason I left). Then I had acupuncture, then we had the bas____nt remodelers here, then dinner, then bd'ing....bla bla. Busy day. We decided to go ahead with the bas____nt, but they won't start until mid-July, so after our parents' visits. Anyway...MICHELE. Good job saving the puppy! You are a real hero! I would be on pins and needles once that happened. I'd probably ask DH to make a spot in the whelping box for me. Ugh. Very impressed with your puppy saving skills. SUE - Congrats on those numbers!! Great news. Must be of some relief to you. And I agree on the numbers...it was only one test. But, I don't want another one because they always take the highest number as your benchmark, and if it's any higher, an IVF or IUI doc might not take me. Who knows, the RE may make me do the clomid challenge anyway. Did you happen to ask your doc's opinion on 11.2? And I didn't think for sure that your number was too low or anything...just wondered since I know you have had trouble determining O at times if it was related. I would kill for an FSH like yours, for sure. It is very hard not to be discouraged by it because finding good news related to elevated FSH isn't easy. The less I search for it, the better off I am, so I am just plugging away with the acupuncture and herbs hoping for the best. I am scared though...and the first night we ttc again I cried. I didn't realize HOW scared until that moment. And the liklihood that I will m/c again, at some point whether it is before or after a good pg, is very high. How do you prepare for that AND keep your head up? Can't let it get me down though...have to keep trying...don't have a choice. It makes me sad sometimes as I really never expected this. NV and AA - our anniversary is on June 18, so I think we are all close. I like the idea NV of the cake. We thought about doing the same thing. The top of ours was cut into 4 quarters, and we saved on 1/4 of that for our anniversary. I decided to not waste the other 3/4 if it was gross after being frozen for a year because that cake was DAMN good. As they say, My Momma Didn't Raise No Dumb Kids. Ha. We don't have much planned for this anniversary because we have spent so much with the yard and are going to be building a pergola in the back this next week. Add on the bas____nt, and well, no trips for us. AA - the yard sounds great, though the neighbors sound like jacka$$es. Seriously. Who builds a second tier deck and then trims the tree? Were they hoping for a DIRECT view of the sun or is there some other kind of "view" from that vantage point? I have been to Sacramento. What can they see? The floodplains? Rocklin? UCDavis? Ugh. But, I did notice you have a hot tub. Nice. Too bad you won't be able to sit in it for 9 months, huh? You are closing in on the 2ww. And remember, many people get their BFP earlier than dpo 14...you gonna test early? So, I just planted some dahlias, Rocky Mountain Penstamon and salvia among others. I wanted to throw in some strong perinnials toward the back of the yard for color. We'll plant wysteria at the base of the pergola when it's done. Can't wait for some shade. DELTA...how is the sperm count coming? No pun intended. So, you see who had the best lot of swimmers and throw them out with the cows? How many bulls do you put out there at once? I thought about bailing on my last day, but I didn't want to do that to my 2 a__sistants. I got there at 9, took a trip to Starbucks, then my idiot manager brought bagels for a little "Goodbye Mindy" party, then I wrote a couple reports, then I left for acupuncture at 3 and never looked back. I will miss riding the scooter and working downtown, but I think it is a good move for now. One day, I want to leave this IT world behind and do residential design, but that's a lifetime away right now. For now, I have the week off. Anyway, I digress. Any results yet DE? And who the hell are you kidding with the "I'm not sure if we'll find out about the s_x" thing. Yeah, right. And like AA said, lift with your legs and don't get caught in your bailing wire and fall off the wagon. Today is cd14, took my temp at 6:30 and dropped to 97.24 (I took it again at 7:30 because I read the clock wrong, and it was 97.42, but since I normally temp between 6:30 and 7 I think I will go with the 97.24. What do you think? My opk wasn't positive yesterday, but the line wasn't light, either. You know what a PITA those things are, so who knows...that might mean nothing. I will try to do one today, but I have a haircut, then we are going to the Rockies game, so POAS might be hard. We'll see. I have gotten pretty good at being covert about it. Anywho...glad you are all doing well. NV-kiss those puppies for me. And yeah, how is the nausea?

 

Morrison1 - June 10

I hope I didn't miss anything, but I think I did. If so, sorry. Catching up with you gals is hard! AA - can I come to Carmel with you? I promise not to bug you too much. Really. And NV - the Molly/Baxter thing is hysterical. Go Molly. Maybe Baxter is having sympathy nausea for you.

 

Morrison1 - June 11

So where did you all go? Hmmm.
